What We Do

Beacon of Light Foundation™ Scholarship

Each Spring, local high schools are encouraged to promote the Beacon of Light Foundation™ scholarship opportunity to their senior class. Eligible students must complete an application, a writing sample, provide official transcripts, letters of recommendation, and a college acceptance letter. The applications are reviewed by the scholarship committee. Scholarships are awarded at our annual Scholarship Brunch in June.

In Fall 2019, Beacon of Light Foundation™ launched a new scholarship opportunity for continuing college women, the Erika D.

Applications are due by December 15th and scholarships are awarded in January.
